Does anyone know anything about these guys? I have 1 duckling that survived (learned a hard lesson about chicken feed an duckies not mixing)  an I am doing research to figure out what other breeds to get. I want to know any pros an cons to these little guys. Any advice would be very helpful.

Oh, no.

 

Do you have gro-gel or sav-a-chick, similar vitamins with probiotics?

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

People often ask if they should "put down" a bird that has suffered major injuries.  In my experience, birds appreciate the opportunity to recover.  Ducks have an amazing ability to heal, even from injuries that appear to be catastrophic.
